The Hesketh range of white label wines represent the best of our home state, South Australia – one of the most celebrated and diverse growing regions in the world. Grapes for these wines are grown only in premium dry-grown sub regions of South Australia which are best suited to each wine style. The wines are then blended before bottling to a fresh, fruit driven style which is perfect for everyday drinking – or more salubrious occasions. Fruit for our Twist of Fate Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Bool Lagoon situated in the Limestone Coast region. The terra rossa soils and cool climate of this area make it a perfect location for growing flavoursome Cabernet. Following picking, the fruit was closed top fermented with time remaining on skins varying between 8 – 10 days. Malolactic fermentation and maturation took place in majority (90%) older French oak Barriques.
TASTING NOTES: Colour: Deep purple with a ruby rim. Aroma: A classic Cabernet nose that just jumps right out of the glass with aromas of cassis, cedar and roasted coffee beans. Palate: Dark blackcurrants layered with cassis and dark chocolate are wrapped up in an elegant whirl of French oak. Nice grippy tannins and a velvety smooth, lingering finish. Food Match: BBQ beef short-ribs with homemade slaw. Cellaring: 5 to 8 years.
